Sometimes I print up lovely menu’s for each person to choose as though they are at a restaurant.

I also create alternate meal ideas (2-3) in case something comes up and I am unable/ (or do not want to) make dinner. For instance, if one of the boys gets sick, or if dh is going to be very late from work.
